Contrary to some popular opinion within the global fashion world, German fashion is far from dead. Designers at this year’s Mercedes Benz Fashion Week in Berlin (January show collections that thrive with vivid patterns and bold aesthetics; they breathe a very fresh breath of life.
Here are some of the best designs from Berlin Fashion Week 2015
Redefining business casual. In Dorothee Shumacher designs, you can go from meeting to meet-up in seamlessly and make a statement in a completely original way.
Fancifully playing with the wedding dress. Traditional meets tantalizing in some of these breathtaking designs.
These looks all exhibit a chic city dweller. The collection thrives on layers and fashionable comfort.
Nana K. Brenu
Some of the most memorable work of Berlin Fashion Week 2015, an impressive display of colour and bold symbols “influenced by the impact of the complex simplicity of the monochromatic geometric designs of traditional Ghanaian symbols,” yet remaining very original and modern. Nana K. Brenu’s design philosophy for 1981 “is based on the notion that design should reflect who you are, where you are from and where you have been. In other words clothes are the storytellers on the journey of our lives.”
